‘Malitte,’ A Polyurethane Foam and Red Fabric Seating Unit
Italy, c. 1966
Roberto Sebastian Matta

Gavina
62 x 64 x 25”


This colorful collection of polyurethane foam shapes could be stacked into a rectangular wall or used as individual pieces of seating. The design concept is playful and flexible. Its interlocking organic shapes reflect Matta's training as an architect in his native Chile as well as his Surrealist painting practice, which developed after his move to Paris. —MoMA
